ITC354 Routing and Switching (8)

This subject is designed to provide students with experience in the architecture, components and operations of routers and switches in networks. Students will design, test and analyse the elements of small to medium-sized networks. Concepts covered in this subject enable students to develop skills related to static and dynamic routing protocols, switching, Virtual Local Area Networks (VLAN), Access Control Lists, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, Network Address Translation and troubleshooting. This subject is the second in a series of three subjects that incorporate the Cisco Networking Academy Program.
